. this is kpix 5 news. >> how much longer will bart stations be empty? why no news could be good any tonight. good evening, i'm allen martin. >> and i'm liz booth cook. the who siesd have been in negotiations for about ten hours. at this point, it looks like the strike will stretch into a fourth day. christin, they just walked out. are they any closer to a deal. >> it's tough to tell. they have a gag order imposed by their mediators, but we did see several people coming out of here a moment ago. they can't tell us how successful these talks have been so far, but we can tell that there at least must have been some sort of change here because their tone has changed. we're not hearing anymore of the public bashing and finger pointing. >> after a brief dinner break,
11:02 pm
first union representatives then bart officials made their way back inside the caltrans building. >> all i can say, we made progress yesterday, and we hope to continue progress today. >> that's what's best. we want to make sure those conversations stay at the table so we can try to get a deal done as soon as possible. >> both sides have been hunkered down here for hours attempting to hash out a contract, but the public's patience is wearing thin. jeff berger, an unemployed former pilot, picketed today's negotiation with a sign asking bart to hire him instead. >> there's thousands of people like us up here either unemployed or underemployed. we would be grateful for the opportunity as opposed to those people who are on strike right now. >> in a new kpix 5 server usa poll, 23% have responded, said the union has made the better case, but nearly double that, 40%, sided with bart management. >> the longer the strike goes, the danger is that commuters become more resistant to what
11:03 pm
the union is demanding. >> union organizers say they sympathize with commuters. >> i apologize for the inconvenience caused by with holding our labor, but somebody has to take a stand. >> and, again, representatives on both sides leaving tonight after hours of negotiations. none of them are actually talking to us on camera today because of that gag order. i did ask bart officials earlier today whether it was possible if they could impose a contract on workers effectively forcing them to work under these conditions. they said that's a possibility rgs just not now. live in oakland, christin ayers, kpix 5. >> as for thoesz terrible commutes, the july 4th holiday should help cut down on some of the gridlock. bart will run shuttles but not many sending three buses to each of the five stations it's been serving. they'll show up at 6:00 a.m.. as for ac transit it's adding nearly a dozen extra buses. they'll be running on the n, l and f line.
11:04 pm
it is thursday morning in cairo. we have a live look at tharir square. you can see a lot quieter now. the celebration went on late into the night after the egyptian military forced the country's first democratic-elected president out of office. the military is said to have morsi and 12 presidential aids under house arrest. the chief justice of egypt's supreme constitutional court will be sworn in as interim president tomorrow. the military also suspended the islamist-drafted constitution and called for new elections. >> cairo now is a city divided. while behind me these people may be celebrating, just a couple of miles away, they are very angry, and the question now is just how dhangous is this risk between the two groups going to be. >> mrsi's supporters mostly from the muslim brotherhoods have refused to accept his ouster.
11:05 pm
sharon shen talked to egyptians in the bay area, and they say bring it on. >> many people we talked to tonight say they are thrilled morsi is gone because that means egypt can now have a real chance at democracy. >> i am truly truly happy. >> business owners were born in egypt and still have many relatives there. they say its first dim cat tickly-elected president had to go. instead of forming an inclusive government, morsi tried to give his al lice in the muslim brotherhood a monopoly on power. that's a warning for the next leader who ignores the citizens' demands for equality and human rights. >> they will not take it laying down so they will do everything in their power to make sure whoever tafshg takes over listens to the people. >> michael's relatives joined the massive street rallies in cairo. the san mateo businessman said
11:06 pm
morsi's government made life tough for his christian relatives. >> not having opportunities for employment, difficulty when looking for an apartment to live. his day-to-day life becomes very difficult. >> yusef and his family hope egypt will quickly adopt a new constitution and elect a parliament and new policies, in other words, do what morsi should have done. >> now, they're no longer treated as second-klass citizens. >> sharon, the billion and a half dollars the u.s. gives every year, what 's going to happen. >> was it a coup? morsi says it was, but the military calls it the will of the people so the obama administration ultimately is going to have to decide what to do. >> okay. sharon, thank you. the turmoil in egypt pushed crude oil prices to their highest level in two years. $101 a barrel, and you know what that means. gasoline prices sure to follow. it's a huge black eye for
11:07 pm
one of the largest community colleges in the country. kpix 5's joe vasquez spent the day finding out what went wrong at san francisco city college. >> it's outrageous. it's agreejous. it's illegitimate and, yet, it could happen as early as next summer. the decision came today for the accrediting commission that city college of san francisco will no longer be accredited by the state. the commission cited chronic problems with leadership and govern nans and a persistent history of financial mismanagement. >> we're all human, but at some point we got to pass the torch to somebody who can do a better job. >> the commission says it had given city college 14 recommendations for change, but that the college only corrected two of them. >> this happened on your watch. is this an embarrassment for you. >> it's -- it's very disappointing. >> john rizzo is president of the ccsf board. he says the college recently revamped its management structure, a highly unpopular
11:08 pm
move, which included layoffs, but apparently it wasn't enough to appease the creditors. >> we followed their advice to the letter, and still it wasn't enough. the changes at city college are massive. they are massive. the cuts were massive. >> they called into question govern nans, the way the place was run. do you owe these students the apology. >> some of that was true over a year ago, but it's not true now. >> this is by no means a done deal. city college is going to appeal the decision. at least one teachers' group is talking about a lawsuit, and even if those efforts fail, doesn't mean they'll shut down city college. in fact, they're talking about appointing an outside trustee to run the college, liz, in which case the local school board, the elected board would be rendered powerless. >> meanwhile, the students are the ones that are really suffering. >> yeah. you know, you've got people trying to transfer to four-year institutions.
11:09 pm
if the accreditation is gone, they can't transfer credits, and secondly there's a lot of people here on federal financial aid, and that could get yanked. >> sure. all right. thank you. a big rule change for california public schools is just a signature away. lawmakers passed a bill that would allow transgender students k through 124 to choose which restrooms they use and which teams they join regardless of their gender. if the governor signs it, california would be the first state to have such a law. opponents say it conflicts with other students' right to prooif sifrments a bay area-based summer camp is mourning the sudden loss of one of its staffers. counselor was killed today when part of a large oak tree came crashing down on the camp. she was about to enter her senior year at uc santa cruz. she was an environmental studies major also active with the campus radio station. >> a very out going. she was light hearted, always could rely on her to take the spirits up around the station.
11:10 pm
>> four other counselors were hurt in the accident at camp towonga in the stanislaw national forest. campers were just starting their day when the unthinkable happened. >> i can give you an idea where this took place. you can see the building behind me and just to the left of it are the power lines that were hit when the tree fell. this all took place about 8:30 this morning while the campers were having breakfast. the tree did not fall on the building, but instead it hit an open space, a fire circle. the tree came crashing down in an open space by the dining hal. >> it's an oak tree. when it fell down, it took down power license, as well. pg&e had to come out, turn those lines off, then cal fire was able to go in and start removing portions of the trees to help get those people out that were injured. >> the san francisco bay's camp says all campers are safe and accounted for, and camp is still continuing, but early word that children had been hurt sent some parents into an understandable panic. >> there were some parents that
11:11 pm
i saw, yes. >> san francisco sheriff ross mirkarimi's family is camping nearby, and he stopped to see if he could be help. >> it's a tragedy. word spread fast, and it was hard to get any accurate information so just thought i'd come by. >> kpix 5. and in a statement, the camp thanked its stafz saying they complem mri fied the spirit at this time of need. a beautiful few out of san francisco. it's even warm in the city tonight. the heat wave officially lasted a full week, but, paul, is the end in sight. >> the end is in sight. we are almost finished with this heat wave. seven days and counting. tomorrow will be day no. 8. san ramon, livermore and con sord all in excess of 100 degrees. big ridge of high pressure giving us the heat, but look at what's going on around the edge of that high including pretty close to the bay area, we've got active weather. those are thunderstorms to our

possibly poisonous treats..t all ov . someone may be out to get bay area dogs. san francisco cops just put out a warning about possibly poisonous treats left all other one neighborhood. two dogs, in fact, ate cooked meat balls that looked like this. they had to be taken to the er. they were seriously sick. the meet balls left on crest line and burnett street in twin peaks, neighbors collect as many of them as they can find. >> seems absurd that someone would try and poison an animal pathetic. >> it's horrible. it's like hearing when, you know, for halloween they put bad stuff in children's candy. it's kind of like the same thing. >> yeah. >> it's horrible. >> the meat balls they collected have now been taken to uc davis

for testing. vets say if you think your dog has been exposed, please get him checked out immediately. the gold striker at california's great america is back. the park shut down its newest roller coaster after people in nearby buildings complained about all the screaming. as kiet do tells us, adjustments were made to muffle the noise. kiet. >> well, liz, there she is ready for one of the busiest days of the year tomorrow. if you're inside one of these sound tunnels, and this is not necessarily a bad thing, the sound echoes back and forth and makes it very intense. outside, not so much. >> does the new sound tunnel work? listen for yourself. it's a 70-foot enclosure built to cover a dip near the beginning of the ride. engineers say screams coming from this section traveling about 500 feet to this nearby office building causing the noise levels here to slightly exceed their limits. >> for today the gold striker is
11:17 pm
closed. >> great america took the unusual step of shutting down its flag ship coaster for two and a half days to build the tunnel in time for the holiday weekend. standing underneath, we measured the sound level with an iphone app and got a reading with 88 decibels. then we measured the noise levels at the office level. >> all right. coaster just went through, and we're reading 65 decibels. how is that tunnel working now. >> great. great. i road it, and you guys got to ride it, too. >> great america said it's a good problem to have. >> every time i hear the screams, it makes me smile. we don't want to discourage any type of screaming. we encourage it. we just needed to make sure they were compliant. >> what if they told you to keep it down when you're on a roller coaster, don't yell so much. >> that would be horrible. how do you not scream on a roller coaster. >> so the fix allowed them to operate this ride until the end of the year, makes everybody happy. if there are any issues, they'll address it at the end of the
11:18 pm
season. liz. >> well, kiet, looks like you're having fun. you were screaming like a little 13-year-old girl there. >> exactly. it is really fast. it's very smooth. if you've been on another wooden roller coaster before, you know how rackety and clak ety it can be. this is very smooth and relentless, nonstop. you do not have a chance to catch your breath. >> looks like not. all right. thank you. i scream, you scream, perfect weather for ice cream. susan shows us your favorite ice cream may not be what it used to be. >> breyer's has been making ice cream since 1866, but if you look closely, ice cream isn't ice cream anymore. it's frozen dairy dessert sgli thought i was buying ice cream. >> mary has been buying breyer's butter pecan for years, but the last time she bought it. >> i served it to a couple
11:19 pm
family members who immediately said something is wrong with this product. >> butter pecan and other popular flavors like cookies and cream, chocolate chip cookie dow and rocky road are now called frozen dairy dessert because breyer's changed the ingredients and legally they can no longer be called ice cream. >> are you kidding me? who wants to put that in them. >> we found consumers voicing outrage over the change. one ice cream blogger wrote, "frozen dairy dessert is the scourge of the ice cream aisle." so why did it make the change on so many of its flavors? the company said it's blended in a whole new way to create a smoother texture. it tends to have less fat than ice cream and the company says in a national side-by-side taste test, our fans like the new recipe just as much as the original so we set up our own taste test with five college students, but when we put frozen
11:20 pm
dairy dessert up against real ice cream. >> huge difference. >> well, this tastes so much better. i don't want frozen dairy dessert. i want the real stuff. >> the new frozen dairy desserts, by the way, cost just as much as real ice cream. >> well, ice cream would have been the perfect dessert these past few days. >> i tell you what, folks inland probably would have taken the frozen dairy dessert. we don't care. it's warm enough outside. seven consecutive days once we hit tomorrow at or above 100 degrees. that is rare around these parts. san francisco above normal but hanging out in the 70s during the day. 60s at night. tower red white and blue. why? hope you know by now tomorrow is july 4th. independence day, america's 237th birthday. only in the bay area can we do this, 44 degrees separated the two today. ocean beach 61 degrees for a high. san ramon, you hit 105. now, i know a lot of you want to get outside and see fireworks tomorrow night.
